  • Fears that those entrusted with guarding the American leadership may be infected with extremist ideology. Some were found involved in the storming of the US Capitol An inside hit of the kind that killed many world's leaders by their own bodyguards. John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963. Such a possibility would worry the US security personnel. An allegation that extends to even some extreme right-wing Republican lawmakers.

  • We have to hold Trump accountable for the insurrection to set a precedence... if he leaves office now without facing consequences it will only leave the door wide open for this to happen again. Impeachment is not enough... We also need to create a viable way to remove a sitting president who incites violence, abuses his power and neglects his duties as president allowing thousands to be put in harms way 100%

  • Late Night show hosts need to stop talking about politics. Trump never incited violence against the capital or anything. He actually said at his speech in DC that they were going to peacefully protest. He also said that he wanted everyone to get away from the capital because of the escalating violence with far right wing people. Get your facts straight before you say a president did something that he didn't do just because you don't like the man.

  • Bro STFU omg you literally said nothing about all the violent BLM riots that kept being pushed by democrat leadership who kept pushing for more protests after so many violent ones happened and all the protests became violent even after they kept pushing it. Democrats like Maxine Waters literally called for violence against Trump and his cabinet members back in 2016 bro like if telling supporters to protest and then a few idiots from the protest break into the capital means "Trump incited violence" you're an idiot

  • Congress can't accept the votes from the house of representatives on the impeachment because should be a do process. So quickly to impeach but in a trial should have a do process. All the votes don't count. But if Congress commit an error if they do then will demonstrate that they are not representing the American people. Amazing the house of representatives showed up so quickly to represent themselves but when they needed to pass a relief bill draggs for months.

  • *Some typical **_MitchTrumplican_** party CULT FOLLOWERS' debating methods are listed here* _(feel free to add your own):_ *1)* *FULLY OPTIONAL TRUTH-* (aka "alternative facts") --Cult followers do not respect truth. In fact, they sincerely believe that truth is determined entirely by their own willingness to accept or reject it. In other words, only those things the cult follower WISHES to be true qualifies as truth. Truth or fact is at the exclusive whim of the extremist. The sources which armed them with the disinformation they possess, are always accepted at face value. No proof or verification is required. YOU on the other hand, will inevitably be required to provide "sources", "links" or other aids, which they have decided in advance are NEVER acceptable to them. For they and only they stand on high in ultimate judgement. (If you are foolhardy enough to play under their terms, you deserve the migraine that follows.) *2)* *"WHATABOUTISM"* --They totally ignore any specific criticism of Trump or the extreme right, and attempt to change the subject. (In the case of Trump, this deflection and obfuscation nearly always involves either Biden, Hillary or Obama. - -General right-wing criticism inevitably leads in some form to vilification of Black Lives Matter or the ultimate "bogeyman", ANTIFA.) _This is one of their most effective strategies and far too many opponents allow it to succeed._ *3)* *DEEP FAKE-* --They repeat assorted false conspiracy theories advanced by right-wing extremist media (George Soros, voter fraud, stolen elections, etc.) _By the way, they always imply that all voter fraud can ONLY favor the Democratic party. Never the other way around. Do not allow this presumption to fly._ *4)* *ONE-WAY ACCOUNTABILITY-* --When these extremists talk about people "taking responsibility for themselves" or "being accountable" for their actions or condition, they NEVER think those concepts should apply to them. Black and brown people are to blame for the racism and racial inequality they claim to confront, which by the way ended with slavery. (The more charitable extremists generously extend it to the end of Jim Crow.) This is of course, one of the most despicable of their distortions. But they are conditioned to pretend it's completely rational and logical. Also, they insult the collective intelligence of black Americans by insisting that the "left" has successfully brainwashed them, suggesting they aren't smart enough to recognize their own oppressors. *5)* *ONE-WAY FAKE NEWS-* --They believe there is no such thing as right-wing fake news. Everything they say is automatically true. And of course, all information from non right-wing individuals or media is automatically false by virtue of the source. Information provided from "THEIR SIDE" is 100% right/ Information from the OTHER SIDE is 100% wrong, 100% of the time. *6)* *ZERO-SUM NATIONALISM* -- Their position is that you might live in the United States, but anything good for non right-wing extremists is bad for America. The cult followers believe: If you are of the wrong ideology, race, religion, nationality or lifestyle, they have decided you are not a "REAL American". (This of course, is in their mind justifies the Jan 6th debacle where they sought to "take back" THEIR country.) *7)* *DRUNK UNCLE U.S. HISTORY-* --This commonly succeeds because so many Americans don't know the truth in the first place. (It's interesting to note that foreign-born individuals and commentators often recognize and push back on this more often and more effectively than natural-born Americans.) One of the most ubiquitous examples of this is rewriting the history of racism in America. It often involves an attempt to completely absolve the Republican party (and by extension, right-wing Conservatives), of all accountability for racism both past and present. *8)* *STOPPING THE CLOCK_* --This is a method designed to take credit for periods that appear to reflect positively on their party while taking no blame for periods that reflect negatively on Conservatives or Republicans. One good example is racial injustice in America. The Republican party began it's existence on the right side of the race issue. So they talk incessantly about centuries past. However they "stop the clock" at the Civil Rights movement because in the past 55-60 years, they have virtually nothing to brag about. In the case of Trump, the clock stops at the Covid-19 pandemic. They intend to only acknowledge economic and human conditions prior to the crisis. So things like skyrocketing deaths, joblessness and homelessness are discounted, allowing them to ignore and excuse the catastrophic failure of Trump's "response" to the disaster. As if it did not occur on his watch. *9)* *RIDICULOUS FALSE EQUIVALENCIES-* --This is a very common method they will use if you allow it to pass through. A ready example is comparing the Black Lives Matter movement to white supremacist extremist groups. Even stooping as low as being more offended by a black man kneeling silently before a football game (in their view, "disrespectful to the flag"), than they are by a white man using that same flag to attack and beat a Capitol police officer. *(THIS IS BY NO MEANS INTENDED TO BE PRESENTED AS A COMPLETE LIST. IT IS SIMPLY A FEW OF THE MOST COMMON TRICKS MITCHTRUMPLICANS AND CULT45 MEMBERS EMPLOY. YOU MAY HAVE MANY MORE.)*
